I would have to agree it just comes with practice and lots of it. But def learn the pentatonic scale. Its fairly simple. Once it becomes as second nature as the first chords you learned the rest will fall in place. Good to see another hendrix fan as well. I worship Hendrix

The purpose of improvisation is to keep everything in your subconscious. So, just play as much as humanly possible. Perhaps while watching television, or with the accompaniment of friends who also play instruments.

agreed. improvisation is like a meditative exercise. you need to be able to lose yourself in it and just let yourself exist while the moment transpires. you'll know it when you feel it but once you know it you don't feel it anymore.

When I am practicing songs from jazz band at home, I do solos for most every piece that are improvised, and occasionally, I will go off in tangents and do endless solos without considering how long the solo is supposed to be. Regardless of how long I do the actual solos, every time I make up a solo in my head for a song I've recently learned while mentally singing to myself, the solos are endless. I also like to experiment with mental solo session, trying at least one different thing time that is a little more outstanding.

Bottom line: Losing yourself in solos and other improv.=makes me happy. It's where a lot of my passion during the boring school days go.
